    Thanks!

    I placed it in June so about 6 months which was what I had expected since i've heard that the mto waiting time has gone up somewhat.. I read somewhere on SF that someone waited more than 7 months

    Ahh, Very good information regarding how this last fits your particular foot and build. I have pretty short and somewhat narrow feet as well. And this is part of why I like longer lasted shoes.

    Can you show a pic of that loose piece of leather?
